Unruly Atoms

In the shadow of a blue moon,
a firefly cages unruly atoms,
summer heat struggling to break free.

A firefly cages unruly atoms

    Totally unique to photograph active fireflies, thanks for sharing Rick!

    A wow, Rick, absolutely great. You know, maybe it’s a coincidence or a butterfly effect, yesterday I was thinking about fireflies I saw on a camp trip last year without my DSLR and how I would love to see some again (and be prepared;)). Thx for lifting my mind.
